From what my mother tells me (she still lives there) it is NOT easy to find a doctor (my old family doc is retiring soon, booo!), and peditricians up there, you can get into by referral ONLY.

Groceries prices seem okay to me! and i live in edmonton now. Bonus side! no more PST for you!
Thanks!! We're really liking GP so far! I somehow managed to find a family doctor right away. Everyone I tell that too is shocked. They were opening a new clinic and I happened to call just in time! And now I'm pregnant so I got refferred to an OB/GYN right away

Having a better selection of stores helps with the grocery budget for sure! We do find a lot of things more expensive here, but the wages are much better so I guess it all equals out in the end!
